Another crowded holy place

Anyway, I got into this un-cozy 15 seater to take me to Ajmer and Pushkar on the way.
The only agenda here was to visit the durgah of Baba Garib nawaz. Guess what ... another holy place. Man I was getting tired of these.. but apparently, like all others, it was a "must visit". We took a big tuktuk/rickshaw to the area, and walked to the Durgah. It was terribly crowded, as expected. And full of hawkers/shops asking everyone to buy stuff to take into the Durgah. After some jostling through the dense crowd, and an entirely too brief time inside the holy tomb, we went back to wait for the whole group to assemble. Took the rickshaw back to the bus parking. Post this I booked myself a ticket to Udaipur. Wasted time on the 'net, looked for a decent place to eat, found none and ate at a half decent one near the bus pickup point, wasted more time waiting for the bus.
Finally, got picked at around 22:00 and sat my way in a crappy-ish rigid seat, for lack of availability in a better bus, all the way to Udaipur.
